Are there specific folders that SpiderOak will not sync?

This article has moved to our new Help Center and will no longer be updated on this page. Please see the Help Center for the newest version.

In general, SpiderOak will synchronize any folder that it can back up (including network drives, external drives, USB Keys, and so on).

However, there are some folders we do not recommend synchronizing, such as application data folders. The reason for this is that many applications, such as iTunes and iCal, cannot handle having another process change their data files. For example, you can synchronize your actual music files without any problems, but you shouldn't synchronize the iTunes database of songs.
